Stevia is a natural, non-caloric sweetener made from the stevia leaf, which grows in Central and South America. Stevia has been used for more than 1,500 years by indigenous peoples in Paraguay and Brazil. It is considered safe by the FDA and does not cause blood sugar levels to rise, making it a great sweetener alternative to sugar or artificial sweeteners.
Stevia is a natural sweetener that’s derived from the stevia leaf and has 150-400 times the sweetness of sugar. It’s been used in Japan for a long time, but only recently has it become popular in Western countries. The sweetness from stevia doesn't derive from carbohydrates like sugar does, which means that stevia has no effect on blood glucose or insulin levels.
Stevia has been studied for more than 30 years and is used in more than 40 countries worldwide.
We like stevia, but depending on the quality of stevia extract in the products you consume, you might have experienced an unpleasant aftertaste. Hopefully not with VivaStix!
